Five fun math activites to celebrate the holiday season.
A fun, holiday game to practice integers (all operations). Each student takes a turn solving a problem and telling the other person their answer (the questions on one gameboard match the answers on the other gameboard). The answer either "hits the snowman", is a "miss", or is not on the gamebaord (meaning they need to re-do the problem more carefully- they made a mistake). The first person to get all the hits on the other person's snowman wins!!!
Two Holiday Coloring Pages (proportions)-
The students solve proportion problems to determine which color each shape gets. One coloring page is just simple propotions without using decimals. The second page has decimals in both the questions and the answers.
This is a fun, festive game to practice multiplying decimals and still celebrate the upcoming holidays. The students begin at the "start" solving questions. The correct answer to the first question leads them to the second question (and so on). The students eventually make their way to their to the end of the game. The great value in this game is that students know instantly if thier answer is incorrect (If they don't see their answer- they did something wrong). Questions are one-step linear equations that include fractions, decimals, and negative numbers
